iPrint sizing

Back when we converted from queue-based to NDPS we had a revolt among our
helpdesk staff. They stopped using NDPS and went to direct IP-printing
over IP. Now that we've taken a solid look at iPrint, they like that a lot
better.

Now we're in the process of identifying all the direct IP-print printers
out there. And there are a lot of them.

Right now we have 143 NDPS printers on this specific Manager, and will
likely end up adding /over 100 more/. I didn't know we had that many
printers out there. Yeesh.

Are there any guide-lines about the number of printer agents that can be
configured on a Manager? Or even, is a good idea? With that many printers
total page-counts per printer are going to be relatively small, but still.
We could run past the magical 255 number.

Re: iPrint sizing

you should just be able to enable iPrint printing from the current NDPS server setup that you have. And you don't have a limit of 255 printers. We have NDPS managers in some environments running close to a 1000

Sweeeeet.

As it turns out most of the 'new' printers are just rediscovered NDPS printer
😛 Our helpdesk apparently REALLY didn't like NDPS for whatever reason.
